Just a poll to see what the average amount of RAM and hard drive size people have in their Apple notebooks(Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iBook, Powerbook..etc). So, if you could just list what model notebook you have and the amount of ram and size hard drive you have installed that'd be great! Also if the HD and RAM aren't didn't come with your computer when you got it and it was an upgrade, please say whether you did the upgrade yourself or had someone else(friend, shop) do it for you.
Thanks! :)
I'll start with mine I guess:
:apple: Macbook Pro 13" 8GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB HDD. Upgraded from 2GB ram, 160Gb HDD, did it myself.

Its a casual laptop so it works great, I have never owned a laptop I like more than this aluminum unibody. 13" is perfect IMO.

Work: 2007 15" MBP. 6GB RAM, 320GB HDD

Home: 17" Powerbook G4, 2GB RAM, 120GB HDD

I'm trying to convince work to upgrade me to a unibody MBP, since the graphics card has died on mine already. Maybe after the boss gets one of the new models, I'll get his hand me down model.

Early 2006 2.0 Ghz Core Duo 15 inch MBP here. 2Gb of Ram, and 500G
B hard drive upgraded from 100GB stock drive by Tekserve in Manhattan.

I was gonna replace my MBP last year but decided on the upgraded HD instead--glad I did. The computer runs like new now and plenty of space for my movies and shows.

My 2007 MPB only has a 160gb hard drive. Does anyone know how or where I can get this upgraded without voiding applecare?

Anyone know what I should get to upgrade my SR MBP HD?
WD Scorpio Blue 500GB 5400 RPM, Hitachi 500GB 7200 RPM Drive or Intel X-25M are the popular candidates. You could also go to 6GB of RAM

As for the OP:

4GB o RAM
320GB 7200 RPM HDD

If i hold on to my current machine (haven't found justification for the new models) i'll go 8GB and 256/512GB SSD in the future

Wow lots of replies here... cool!
I'm pretty sure you can upgrade the hard drive yourself without voiding your applecare. But even if it did(which I doubt), just keep your old HD around in case you ever need to send your mbp in for repairs... if you end up needing to send it in you can pop the old HD back in your mbp and they won't be able to tell you changed it. I'd recommend doing it yourself... it's easy and it'll save you a bundle. If you look at your manual on apple.com/support they should have instructions in your manual on how to replace the hard drive yourself...

Thanks! I am going to look at these options more closely next week, when I upgrade.
